About Us

Good Reading Magazine kicked off in 2001 when a bunch of book-loving people got together (copious amounts of blind faith and enthusiasm were involved) and decided to start producing a monthly printed publication dedicated to finding Aussie and New Zealand readers great books. We called our magazine Good Reading.

Since then, we’ve become an authority on Australian and international fiction, non-fiction and kids’ books. We’re the most popular consumer magazine about books and reading in Australia, and we produce stacks of independent reviews – that’s what we’re famous for!

We also publish articles and author interviews with such illustrious people as Alexander McCall Smith, Val McDermid, Helen Garner, Philip Pullman, Jackie French, P D James, Sebastian Faulks, Geraldine Brooks, Tim Winton, Michael Ondaatje, Jeffrey Archer, Sir David Attenborough, Margaret Whitlam, Kate Grenville, Magda Szubanski and so, so many more.

You can find all the articles we publish in print on this fabulous website, as well as exclusive online content and book reviews. If you’d like to, you can subscribe here.

But there’s more!

We also create two online mags for young people.

SpineOut is an interactive magazine, by and for high school students. PK mag is a funky online mag for primary school kids. In both of these magazines, we publish stories, articles, reviews and art, or in fact anything made or built, by Australia’s brilliant young creatives.

We’re a community of book lovers here. Come and share your favourite reads, thoughts, and recommendations. And we never judge – if you’re reading, we’re happy!

With love from the gr team – and a big WOOF from our office dog (work-life balance and security officer), Baxter!
